    The Accelerate Programme

    General Introduction

    “Accelerate” is a six month programme designed to support and enhance the onboarding of those who are leaving the Armed Forces and

    who are joining business and civilian organisations for the first time.

The programme consists of diagnostic surveys with feedback, two optional half day workshops and a number of individual coaching

    sessions with highly experienced and accredited business coaches.

    We are seeking to support Companies and Organisations who are recruiting former Officers or Senior Non Commissioned Officers

    (SNCOs) and who aim to achieve immediate results and a fast track performance from new hires. Who is the programme for?

    An individual who has served in any part of the Regular or Reserve Armed Forces and who has already joined or is about to join a

    Commercial or a Non Profit Making organisation

    Individuals who intend to develop a second career in business and expect to be able to achieve high performance levels and subsequent

    rapid acceleration into senior management

    Those individuals who need support after a false start in their first position after leaving the Armed Forces What is the programme about?

    Objectives of the Accelerate Programme

    To enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the onboarding of former members of the Armed Forces as they move from a Services

    work culture into a commercial or civilian environment.

    To coach and mentor these individuals by leveraging their previous experience in order to facilitate their achievement of a fast-track

    and first-time integration into a new career outside of the Armed Forces.

    Armed Forces as a result of recent injuries and/or disablement.
